Lexus LS Overview

The Lexus flagship sedan delivers luxurious, highly refined, and fuss-free motoring with a comfortable and serene ride. It has an exceptionally quiet cabin, and is laden with features. Fit and finish is excellent. The recent freshening made handling a bit more responsive while retaining the silky ride. The eight-speed automatic is very smooth and responsive. The extended-length version has generous rear-seat room. All-wheel drive and a self-parking feature are optional. The LS 600h hybrid comes with standard all-wheel drive. The 2013 freshening brought the Entune system and the same fussy and distracting-to-use mouse-controlled screen found in the GS.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
